A mixed bag

There were 6 of us for dinner. In summary, it was a mixed bag because some of the dishes were good and some were mediocre. The stand out dish was the breast of chicken served on top of spinach and home made breadcrumbs topped with a balsamic dressing. The gnocchi was good but not a wow. The fish... read more

Enjoyed our dinner very much. Good sized portions of very well prepared food. Staff couldn't have been nicer. A real find.

The restaurant was not crowded and the staff were polite and efficient. The food was average. When I had lunch at Town a few years ago it was absolutely wonderful food. This time it was very average, and definitely way too much salt on the burger. The tomatoes for the salad were marinated in something delicious and were the best... More

No parking. Food is average taste, but above market price. Same for alcoholic beverages. Nothing special.

Food is delicious. It is a little on the pricier end, but they support local farmers. They only serve the best veggies and meats. The service is great, friendly and always attentive. The ambiance is modern and artsy. I loved it and it was my second time dining in. They get busy during dinner time and parking is a little... More

First time I've been security wanded on the way into lunch-but that's because Michele Obama was eating lunch there. This didn't have any effect on a wonderful meal with terrific service. We highly recommend this popular spot but make reservations as the space is very limited.

We sat outside with a large group. Service was sporadic but always friendly. Food was solid and a nice break from the Mai Tai scene in Honolulu.

We went here for lunch when we realized Mud Hen Waters (same owners, across the street) was only open for dinner. Pleasantly surprised by a great atmosphere, great staff, and a great menu. The pasta is homemade with great flavors. This place is worth the trip for lunch or dinner.

After a week of eating one great fish after another, I very much appreciated the careful sauces and subtlety offered at Town. Several of my previous meals seemed geared for fish-deprived tourists, and Town's wider selection of entrees coupled with the truly excellent preparations reminded me that fine dining is more than just throwing meat/chicken/fish on to a plate.
